So a further 30 million dollars is to be slashed from our court system here in California, the largest in the nation? This is on top of the 70 million already taken away this last fiscal year. That’s, get this, $100 MILLION DOLLARS. This means that by the end of June, there will be:
350 fewer employees
56 fewer courtrooms
No court reporters for civil trials unless bought and paid for by the litigants (Appeal? Good luck with that. Shoot the wounded? They may now shoot the living dead)
MORE BREAKING NEWS!!
Mr. Fine’s daughter Victoria Fine is letting it be known that there will be a rally in front of the dreaded Stanley Mosk Courthouse on Tuesday morning April 20 at 7:30. This will be, for me, my very first rally.
A Facebook page has been created with the battle cry FREE RICHARD I. FINE!
We’ve been waiting for a very long time for this. Richard Fine may not have sat in Men’s Central Jail‘s solitary confinement for over a year in vain. Let us hope his cause will catch fire. The integrity of our justice system is at stake. This article, written by his daughter Victoria who works for the Huffington Post, explains in great detail, under the title MY DAD TRIED TO RIGHT A WRONG.

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to consider the merits of Mr. Fine’s protest against his coercive confinement for more than a year in solitary, having failed to convince the state’s Supreme Court, and also the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal to release him. The conference hearing will be held April 23. Hopefully, he will have his license to practice restored (see below). He may be one of the few attorneys left capable of acting with the integrity and transparency of a Pro Per. Read Troy Anderson’s report of this most important development.

Let us all salute (now disbarred) attorney Richard I. Fine, for today, March 4, 2010, marks the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of his solitary confinement in an L.A. County jail for the crime of challenging a judge in the course of a courtroom procedure. The details can be found here and here, and is a cause for bewilderment and shock. Judicial Watch, the ACLU, and other watch-dog agencies have their work cut out, in order to correct this astonishing abuse of judicial power. Whatever happened to the writ of Habeus Corpus?
Me? I was jailed for 24 hours by Judge Gold one day before I was to start defending myself in his Family Court. But this senior gentleman, Richard Fine, now starts his 366th day in solitary confinement, where apparently he can’t now chew his food, having lost his teeth.
